From the "What were they thinking?" files

Last night, I saw a young lady wearing pinkish orange "hot pants" with something very odd written on the derriere'; "True love waits."  Well, yes it does, but ordinarily I'd think that drawing mens' eyes to one's tuckus is an odd way of promoting abstinence.

Not quite as bad as Miss America contestants trying to promote abstinence by parading their bikini clad bodies on national TV (worldwide?), but it suggests that we've got something of an issue in our country if we think that we can promote abstinence by wearing tight pants with a slogan right where a man should NOT be gazing.

Sloganeering is strangely disconnected from its actual messages. Perhaps the real message is something different. "Slapping a sentiment on my bottom absolves me of the responsibility for implementing said sentiment through difficult action."
